Long Description:
There is one bell in the belfry weighing about 896 lbs and tuned to A flat. During restoration work in 1992 the bell rope was extended down into the choir stalls to enable ringing without climbing up into the belfry.

In 2002 an electronic bell and clock system was installed to mark 100 years of worship at the church.

The church was built and paid for by E.G.Lancaster, J.P. who is buried in the church grounds, his being the only grave.
